Changemaker Community Series: Chat with Women Changemakers
A monthly gathering for women changemakers to have intentional conversations over happy hour drinks
About this Event

A safe place for women changemakers (and aspiring women changemakers) to meet one another;

A small-scale gathering where you can actually have intentional conversations with everyone;

A community you show up and participate equally as an agent of change;

A space to exchange ideas and find inspirations to bring collective impact;

A tribe you can come back to every month as your support network and build authentic friendship.

This is what this gathering is about. For women changemakers.

This April, we are celebrating the mother earth and questioning about our relationship with it: Why and how should we connect with our planet earth? Dorothy (Dream Impact) and Carmen (Girls Be Change) invited two cohosts, who dedicate their work to sustainability and fight against climate change, to join us for some intentional conversations. They are:

  • Ren Wan (Jupyeah)
  • Krisdean Law (The Green Earth)

What is this Changemaker Community Series about?

The idea of the changemaker gathering series started when Dorothy (Dream Impact) and Carmen (Girls Be Change) met last year, questioning and envisioning what an ideal community is and why we need to gather (so desperately). We need a safe place among women changemakers to have organic meetups, intentional conversations and idea exchange with social ease, find inspirations and encouragement from each other, and build authentic friendships and support networks. It is a gathering where everyone shows up as an equal participant, questioning and chatting. No panel. No presentation. No speech. Just intentional conversations.

This gathering is open only to women changemakers (and aspiring women changemakers).
